From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jarnal is an open-source cross-platform notetaking and sketching application similar to Windows Journal. It is written in Java.

Jarnal can be used with mouse or graphics tablet for freehand notetaking or it can be used for annotating imported PDF files and other imported pictures.[1] It has a feature for recording pen strokes and playing them back as an animation. Recordings can also be saved. Various tools exist for helping freehand usage like graph paper, ruler and arrow tool. Jarnal has handwriting recognition but it also accepts keyboard input for entering text.[2] It supports collaborative writing; a feature that allows multiple authors to edit a single file in real time over a network.

Jarnal was created by David K. Levine and Gunnar Teege and it is in active development. Last version (9.68) was released in 29 Nov 2009.[3]
